For Boston, if their only offering the 20, 22 they need
would have needed come up with another asset or pick. Maybe a future 2nd. I'd go Clarke & Windler.
The picks used to acquire Delon come from the Sato deal.
The pick sent to Portland comes from the Wagner deal.
I'd do the deal for the #42 and draft Bol Bol since I missed out on Bitadze.
The Shumpert deal at 1 yr makes alot of sense, he can swing b/w the 2/3
G Delon Wright ... Troy Brown Jr ... John Wall
G Bradley Beal ... Iman Shumpert ... Jordan McRae
F Jake Layman ... Dylan Windler ... Jermerrio Jones
F Davis Bertans ... Brandon Clarke ... Noah Vonleh
C Thomas Bryant ... Bol Bol ... Moritz Wagner
This team may be a little better than the original
albeit Bol is a much more riskier bet than Bitadze.
Dat... this is the picture that needs to be changed: you've got 15 guys here, without Mahinmi, Bonga & Howard.
Your 15 guys (assuming Shumpert signs for $2m) costs just over $115m. Good!
But... Mahinmi, Bonga & Howard are owed a combined $23.5m. You are @$6m into the luxury tax. Bad!
We're not paying the luxury tax, so... Mr. GM -- what are you going to do?
Oh, and sorry no extra asset from Ainge. You turning down the trade in that case? Nah, I didn't think so.
Howard was dealt for Layman. I dump Wagner's deal on anyone who wants to take a shot on him and absorb his salary. That should give me some breathing room.
Lastly I accepted Boston's crappy offer lol!
Forgot about Howard going in the Layman deal. But... why would Portland help us out? We're taking Layman from them; why do they do us the favor of taking Howard?
If they do, however, there's no need to find someone for Mo Wagner.
(But, of course, in the real world... they don't take Howard off our hands. They punish us for poaching Layman by letting us stew. & there you have one of the reasons why Tommy gets stuck doing a deal like the one that brought us Miles....)
